Sam’s Club is looking to hire approximately 175 associates to work at its new club in San Antonio, set to open this winter at 2530 Marshall Road. To facilitate the process, Sam’s Club will open a Welcome Center at 21803 Encino Commons Blvd., Suite 103. Sam’s Club will mark the opening with a ribbon-cutting ceremony Monday, Aug.19, at 9:30 a.m.
The Welcome Center will be open Monday-Friday from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. for applicants to apply for jobs. In addition, residents and businesses can obtain memberships at the center, giving them the opportunity to begin shopping at the new club this winter.
Club manager Chris Vasquez will be hiring both full- and part-time associates to work in all areas of the club. He hopes applicants will include veterans, who Sam’s Club has made a special commitment to when it comes to jobs. Through the Veterans Welcome Home Commitment, the company will offer a job to any qualified veteran who has been honorably discharged within the past 12 months.

“My favorite part of working at Sam’s Club is having the opportunity to help my associates excel and assisting our members,” said Vasquez, who began his Sam’s Club career 24 years ago as a part-time cashier. He has worked at clubs in Utah, Florida and the Northeast, as well as other clubs in the Lone Star State, including Austin and Waco.
Sam’s Club is committed to becoming a partner in the communities where it locates, and that begins with providing good jobs with career opportunities for local residents.
“We congratulate Sam’s Club on the opening of the new location along the growing 281 corridor. We applaud the Sam’s Club on the creation of 175 new jobs, their efforts to assist our military service men and women who are transitioning to the workforce and all that they do to keep Bexar County strong,” Duane Wilson, North SA Chamber CEO.
